Ditch Rapids in the Frontier 12

You know you have wanted to...  You, like me, have driven by those ditches flowing with snow melt and thought to yourself, "You know, I bet I could canoe down that."  Well, this year my Frontier 12 and I took to my front ditch in pursuit of the fabled ditch rapids. 

I launched my Frontier and settled in for my historic journey down the ditch.  Besides the odd looks from a couple of my daughters friends walking by, which I am writing off as jealousy, I was on my way.  With just enough water to float my Frontier, and a flow powered by steep hills and plenty of snow, I was off on my way down through the ditch rapids.

Now, as the weather continues to warm and the ice recedes I can venture out on the big water.  But the thoughts of my journey down through the ditch rapids will always warm my heart.....ok, maybe not.  But what else is a guy to do when the opportunity presents itself and he hasn't be out in his Frontier in months???  A ditch filled with flowing water starts to look pretty darn inviting!!!
